I applied to be one of the astronauts, but I'm not sure why they gave me a red shirt.

The only spaceships with working rudders.

well, the red shirt is fine. Just remember, do NOT GO on any away teams with the captain. EVER

Go on a reality game show, never return to Earf.

Seems reasonable.

How long till this ends up becoming some interplanetary Truman show?

It's weird to think the first people to live on Mars might already be born. I think that's awesome!

Just send the cast of Jersey Shore, since they already have reality show experience...Yeah, that's it.

But how would you be able to see them against the landscape?

So how are they going to handle the EOL issue? Drag the invalids and geezers into a crater with a rover? At the rate they're talking about, they won't have enough manpower to support sick or geriatric residents.

They'd be perfect for Mars. They're always yelling, "Let's go to Bar-soon"

Only problem is, you would be doing it for free. Why would they pay you, no place to spend the money? One good thing, you would not have to worry about retirement.

If problems occur, there is no recourse available.

Is this anything like Die On The Moon, where astronauts kidnapped people and hunted them for sport on the moon. "He's 35 years old, he's an account manager from Des Moine, and he's about to Die On The Moon!.

But seriously, if the colonists decend into barbarism, what could possibily be done to stop them?

I'd pretty much mutiny as soon as we got to Mars and install myself as dictator. After all, I'd have the only gun.

/Always save one bullet.
 
2012-06-27 02:23:12 PM  
I'd like to go. I think that would be pretty neat. They would have internet access, right? Would it be like the Mars red, green, blue books?
 
2012-06-27 03:13:16 PM  
I'm thinking the suicides are going to be a little controversial.
